    I have the same problem. Also, sometimes at a low speed I get a very load sound, like a tuning fork sound. Just unbelievably loud!

SOURCE: 2006 Honda Pilot - Road Noise - not tires.

the tires make steady noise , check the wheel bearing as noises get high and low at the same speed , and i also would check for diff if it's 4wd.

SOURCE: Honda Pilot 111,000 miles. Wheel or tire noise?

it can be any of the above, rotate the tires and see if the noise location seems to change, but the last thing i would suspect is the CV, they just click when turning, the wheel bearing is my choice here, they roar, tires make a diff noise.

Testimonial: "Rotating the tires didn't seem to change the noise. They are rotated and balanced every 5000 miles. There's still about another year's tread left. "

SOURCE: 1997 breeze is shooting codes 12 46 43 55

OBD Code 12 - No Distributor Reference Pulse (Diagnostic Test Active) The Engine Control Module-ECM uses the distributor reference pulse to calculate the engine speed. On newer engines, the Crank Shaft Position Sensor performs this function.

Symptoms:

  • When flashing the Check Engine Light to read codes, code 12 will always display first, indicating the diagnostic system is active
  • The engine will not run with a "hard" code 12 set
Common Problems:
  • Chances are you will never need to diagnose a code 12. Rather, the problem would be a crank, no-start condition.
  • If code 12 does not flash, that would indicate a communication problem with the ECM.
  • Code 12 does not show when reading codes with a scan tool. If there is a communication problem, the scan tool will let you know.



OBD Code 46 - Pass-Key II System Error - Circuit out of Frequency Range The ECM receives a signal from the Pass-Key module. When the correct signal is received, the ECM will allow the engine to start and run. Please review the RepairPal article on the GM Pass-Key Anti-theft systems for more information.

Symptoms:
  • Engine may not start
Common Problems:
  • Faulty ignition lock cylinder



OBD Code 43 - Knock Sensor error The ECM receives a signal from the Knock Sensor based on the amount of engine ping detected. The ECM uses information from this sensor to help calculate fuel delivery and spark timing.

Symptoms:
  • Engine ping
  • Lack of power
Common Problems:
  • Faulty Knock sensor
  • Poor connection at Knock sensor


OBD Code 55 - End Test.


Hope ehit help (remember comment and rated this).

Whining noise at speed 35/40 left front side wheel 2000 infinity qx4


Try driving at 35/40, so you can hear the noise, try swerving (just a little) to the left, if the noise goes away, when you swerve, you most likely have a bad wheel bearing on that side.

I have a whining noise coming from my 1999 Mercury Sable. Starts at about 20 MPH and increases getting the loudest around 40-60 mph then holds steady, have shifted to nuetral and whining stays. I believe...


Could be anything connected with the front wheels.
So that includes hub-wheel bearings, axle joints, the differential gears, and the transmission.

HAVE 2004 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE,HAS LOW WHINING NOISE FROM LEFT FRONT. CHECKED BRAKES AND ROTORS AND ALL IS OKAY. DRIVES NORMAL AND DOES NOT SEEM TO BE BEARINGS. sTARTS AT ABOUT 20 MPH AND STOPS AT 50 MPH.OR...


the whinning noise is definalty a signiture of the bearing, and they do on occasion start making the noise long before other systoms of a bad bearing appear. There is really nothing else in the suspension that moves in a manner to cause the whinning pitched sound, other than the axel, but there signature has allways been a clicking around turns, so id definatly look cloesr at the bearings......good luck

Whining noise


Can you make the noise happen with your foot on the brake, trans in gear, and a little throttle? And does it go away in park & neutral? If yes to both questions you probably have a faulty thrust bearing in the torque convertor. If no to both questions you like have a faulty "input drum to pump cover thrust bearing." Either way the problem must be repaired ASAP or when the bearing fails it will be at the worst possible time, like in the middle of an intersection with a firetruck bearing down on you.

Whining sound from front passenger side.


Check the condition of front disc brake pads, if they are in need of replacement a preset little metal arm starts rubbing the discs and will make a whining noise. It doesn't do any damage but it's irritating to listen to.
